I have been following Samer Skaik’s advice on this website for several years. I finally got the opportunity to consult him on a very complex case that required immense knowledge, experience and skill to articulate the points. Samer’s well laid out approach to formulating claims not only provided a distinct advantage, but his in-depth knowledge of the elements of the claim was quite impressive and the final product was moved from being “fair” to one that was quite “robust”. Thank you Samer.
Excellent articles on Contract Management contributing greatly to the Contract/ Construction management field. Samer has a thorough answer to any question on contract management reflecting his in depth knowledge on subject and helps a lot to the people new in the field.
I worked on a number of projects with Samer during my time at Damac and was extremely impressed with his analytical and methodical approach to a number of complex issues. Samer was Damac’s key expert witness in a private adjudication against Arabtec in relation to a project in Jordan. Samer provided very important technical evidence with respect to various claims brought by Arabtec which was one of the key reasons that a successful outcome was achieved. Samer was also very clear and concise in explaining technical engineering issues which greatly assisted me in arguing the case on behalf of Damac. More recently, I have been impressed with Samer’s work with respect to the various security of payment regimes in Australia.
Contributing to field of Contracts Construction is a great service! But here we have Mr. Samer Skaik and Team contributing to whole of society. An exclusive and dedicated, well organized team documenting the best practice as well as the regulatory developments. I can say Community redefined by dedication and expertise!
Great articles and tips about Construction Management topics every time. You can trust in the experience of CMGUIDE on themes treated and exposed in the website. Happy eighth birthday and thank you for being there to help us on all these topics. Best regards and may you last a lot of years more.
I have been following CMGUIDE regularly and your contributions are unmatched. The recent article is unique and marvellous research on FAST tracking High Rise Buildings. I presume these observations are equally extendable to normal EPC projects.
I can state with confidence that Samer really is an all rounded professional that does possess diversified hands-on experience in the field of commercial construction projects in the Middle East. Samer’s professional field experience has been complemented by and coupled with his profound academic and research studies and qualifications. The multi-faceted exposure Samer gained while working for a contractor and a master developer as well as from his post-graduate studies and teaching experience gave him a unique opportunity to examine and assess different contentious issues from varied angles and standpoints. Samer has also developed considerable experience backed up by real-life lessons learnt on FIDIC Contracts and how they are utilized in the Middle East which enabled him to proactively engage in a variety of activities and interactions with FIDIC and its Contracts related events and task groups.
Samer is a most thorough and conscientious researcher of construction law issues, has his finger on the pulse of government intervention (not easy to find) and knows his subject areas intimately. His published articles, research and thinking are refreshing and original. I found him very helpful.
Samer has kindly contributed the Australian chapters of “International Contractual and Statutory Adjudication”, which have been peer-reviewed (with minimal alteration) by Philip Davenport and edited by myself for inclusion in the book. Samer writes fluidly and succinctly, imparting maximum information with minimum fuss. I have little doubt that we will be collaborating again on future publishing projects.
